Aduana Stars midfielder Elvis Opoku believes it was a ‘bad decision’ for the club to sack former coach Yussif Abubabkar midway into their Caf Confederation Cup campaign.
The Fire Boys parted ways with Abubakar after picking just a point from two games, replacing him with Kenichi Yatsuhashi. However, the Japanese coach took several controversial decisions including the selection of Yahaya Mohammed as new captain, which the midfielder believes contributed to their poor results.
“What was the point in the sacking Yusif Abubakar and appointing Kenichi Yatsuhashi,” Opoku told Nhyira FM.
“It was a bad decision and I saw no sense in that decision because Kenichi only came to mess up the whole campaign in the Caf Confederation Cup. Look at what he did regarding the club's captaincy. He woke up one day and said he was appointing a new leader without any consultations.
"He picked Yahaya Mohammed but Joseph Addoo and myself didn't agree. We vehemently opposed that decision but the other players didn’t support us and the club's leadership also did nothing against his decision so it stood. However, that decision wasn't the best and it had effects on our campaign,” he added.
Kenichi picked three points from four games as Aduana finished bottom of Group A of the Caf Confed with four points.
